I loved this movie! The script, the acting, the slang, the soundtrack and the aliens were awesome! Rented the movie, then bought it, then bought the soundtrack. Trust!

Very different. Not absolutely amazing, but definitely worth watching. Soundtrack and score are also pretty top notch.

These reviews stink. Must be the movie makers staff. This move was horrible and a waste of my time and money. Worse than a Sunday afternoon SciFi original - MUCH WORSE!!! STAY AWAY................PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Washington Post
In the end, police descend on the block at the very moment their presence becomes irrelevant. They misinterpret everything; locals watch as they blame all the wrong people. Soon their flashing lights will drive away, and the block will go back to taking care of itself the best it can. Full Review

The cast is splendid, the script quick-witted and the action satisfying. Full Review

The New York Times
This fabulously inventive debut feature, written and directed by the British comedian Joe Cornish, never flags. Full Review
Jennie Punter
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Stacked against this summer's CGI-driven blockbusters, Attack the Block is definitely the fastest action ride (clocking under 90 minutes), and quite possibly the most fun. Full Review

Time Out New York
Starring a tough-minded band of scrappy teens who actually do some solving, it's the movie "Super 8" wanted to be - or should have been. Full Review
